ANALYTICAL REPORT ASSIGNMENT REQUIREMENTS – W 2016

Due: February 24, 2016

Assignment

For this assignment, you will be completing the analytical report individually.

The analytical report must be 5 double-spaced pages in length (from introduction through recommendations) about one of these topics:

· The Employment Outlook in Your Major for the next five years

· Strategies for Creating and Delivering Powerful Business Presentations

Additional project details will be provided in class and on Moodle. Please follow the formatting and content guidelines that will be posted on Moodle rather than those of the textbook.

You must use a minimum of five credible refereed secondary sources to compile a reference list. Sources must be cited in the text, not simply listed in the references. Refereed journal article sources are preferred. Wikipedia and web sites are not refereed sources. The sources need to be current; they should have been written during the past five years.

Report Preparation

Please keyboard your report using Arial 12 font so that it follows American Psychological Association (APA) 6.0 guidelines with a professional appearance. Attendance at the APA Style workshop, which is delivered by a member of the library staff during one class session, is helpful in formatting the report. The report must be analyzed by Turnitin before submitting the final copy to the instructor.
